Addressing US Internment and Resettlement: The Not-So-Secret Files

Look at these “leaked” docs. You must be so happy that I am here to save you from the NWO

Note: Alex Jones bullshits everyone once again. His sites post what they claim to be a “leaked” and/or “newly discovered” document that outlines rules for internment of U.S. Citizens. Lets take a look at how and why this is pure bullshit…

Twitter user @LetsRoll404 (aka: 404) tosses great stuff my way all the time and asks my thoughts on it. Usually they can be summed it within 140 characters. The response is either something like “Holy shit”, or “Its pure rubbish”. But the two stories he brought to my attention the other day need a little more time. And it should be noted that his concern was if the OWS actions and behaviours could trigger these directives to be executed. The simple answer is “No” and there is a reason for that, as you will read below. So we are going to go over them one at a t time. Today we will address the concern made by Alex Jones that there is a field manual for “Internment and Resettlement” (I/R) manual for dealing with US citizens. The original post for this story can be found here : Leaked U.S. Army Document Outlines Plan For Re-Education Camps In America and the link that Lets Roll 404 sent me was reblogged here at It was also reblogged on Alex Jones’ “Prison Planet” Here

Not Classified, Not Leaked!

Lets deal with the obvious first problem; the document they site is not leaked. It was never classified and it was not even labeled “Sensitive For Official Use Only” (S/OFUO) Anyone familiar with wikileaks or official documents knows that anagram well. This document for I/R is available here: Its document number FM 3-39.40

While such a document has a title that perks up the ears of any conspiracy theorist worth their salt, a thorough reading and basic understanding of field manuals would quickly cause the hopes of a conspiracy to fizzle. Due to the title and the procedure, certain lines, paragraphs, and whole sections could be cherry-picked to make it seem like something it is not. Like, lets say, a secret Army manual on how to round up US citizens and deal with them in some sort of transfer into a police state.

It is common on the internet now to post a document and claim it was “leaked”. Hell, after wikileaks really gained momentum with the announcement they would publish over 250K state department cables, everyone had a “leak” site or was publishing “leaks”. It was hip. All the kids were doing it. Even the porn industry came up with a not-so-creative site of their own called Porn Wikileaks; only to later be trumped by The Real Porn Wikileaks. I live in the hood. We have a place called “The Barbershop” (just like the movie). Up the road we have “The Real Barbershop”

Problem 2: “Host Nations”

The preface of the field manual tells us exactly what this is supposed to be used for. If you are reading it and have the preconceived notion that these are directions for the Army to take over the citizenry and intern them then you’re in trouble. It clearly states in the preface

“As part of internment, these populations include U.S. military prisoners, and multiple categories of
detainees (civilian internees [CIs], retained personnel [RP], and enemy combatants), while resettlement
operations are focused on multiple categories of dislocated civilians (DCs).”

Where do we find all of the above? The answer is in a conflict area like Iraq or Afghanistan. “Dislocated civilians” are those whom were forced to leave their home and surrounding areas do to conflict on the ground. U.S. military prisoners can range from detained service men, for whatever concerns of battle conduct, to captured enemies. CI’s, RP’s, and “enemy combatants” are also usually held together until a decisions is made as to how to process and deal with them. An individual from any of the three categories can end up in Guantanamo Bay. Or they may be turned over to local authorities (if the legal system is in order to take them).

Even before leaving the preface page we are given the evidence that this is to be used in warfighting situations in “host nations” and does not include the domestic United States. From the same preface, next paragraph:

“Military police conduct I/R operations during offensive, defensive, stability, or civil support operations. I/R
operations include military police support to U.S. military prisoner and detainee operations within operational
environments (OEs), ranging from major combat operations to humanitarian-assistance missions in support of a
host nation (HN) or civil agency. I/R operations are a major subordinate Army tactical task under the
sustainment warfighting function. (See FM 7-15.) Placement under the sustainment warfighting function does
not mean that I/R operations do not have relevance in the other warfighting functions. While I/R is listed under
the sustainment warfighting function, it should be noted this is not a specified or implied mission of all
sustainment units or commands. Most sustainment units provide logistics, personnel services, and health service
support to I/R operations.

Host nation? Yep. That means that this directive in the Army field manual is for use when our forces are on the ground in another country; not the domestic United States. Furthermore the directive limits these tactics to “warfighting function[s]”. So the entire directive is for forces on the ground in a foreign country. We haven’t even left the preface of this part of the manual yet and we have already debunked Alex Jones’ claims that there is a US Army manual that was “leaked” to him. Now we know it was not “leaked”, it was never classified, and it has nothing to do with dealing with US citizens. Be careful of what you read folks and always do your research. Remember, Google is your friend, and this only takes a minute to disprove.

In order to discourage people from actually doing research, and just staying on the Alex Jones sites the first statement and link in his story reads in bold underlined text:

RELATED: Yes, The Re-Education Camp Manual Does Apply Domestically to U.S. Citizens

I invite you to read the document for yourself. It is available on the above link or HERE for direct online viewing. Furthermore I would like an explanation from either Alex Jones, his writer(s), or at least one of his followers, that can show me where and how that document can pertain to US Citizens as he claimed. How about it Alex? Your team of “crack journalists” and followers against little old me. Im sure you or one of them can put me in my place :)

The next one I will address is the second link that Lets Roll 404 sent me. It should be noted that he was the one one who was originally skeptical about all of this; he had not signed off on the Alex Jones conspiracy. Rather the concern was that if this was true, could it be applied to OWS. And that is also why you should follow him. He takes the rational approach to things that seem utterly irrational but possibly applicable. Below is the next story we’ll be dissecting. The title should make you lol just a little. Fun times ahead.

    You made your points clearly and concisely. In another day and age, I would have been persuaded. The problem we conspiracy theorists have is that we don’t believe or trust the government. That may be founded or unfounded but it’s a factor. All of the groups of individuals mentioned are indeed found in an area of conflict. What degree of unrest or turmoil is required before the government declares the area in conflict? We believe that the government is not beyond creating conflict if necessary to implement its programs. We believe the definition of dislocated civilians may not be the same for the government as for you. We believe situations can and will be created by virtue of Obama’s executive order 13603, Natural Defenses Resources Preparedness, which will fulfill the criteria necessary as outlined in this document to start internment, detainment and resettlement. We believe the word “defensive” as in “Military police conduct I/R operations during offensive, defensive, stability, or civil support operations.” moves the whole operation from a host country to the homeland; as does “stability” and “civil support operations”. These all can be applied to this country and IT’S citizens, make no mistake. To further contribute to a CT’s fears is that the government enacts and changes laws as often as a baby’s diaper. What may be a safeguard for a citizen today will not exists tomorrow, or be overridden. Yup, the sales pitch is what you bought, but it’s not the final goal. And conspiracy theorists know it!

    […] it wasn't leaked, it wasn't classified. And it's not talking about internment camps in the U.S.…-secret-files/ What happen to the lame YouTube of the 800 death camps in the U.S.? […]

    Good work once again. We have enough to fight that is accurate without taking on inaccurate or exaggerrated information.

  • Michelle

    Forgive the “exaggerated” typo with double R.

  • Tiffany

    I think the real problem why people assume its civilian internment camps is because of the mislead title. If we actually read the wording it becomes clear. People see this huge document and assume the worst. Thanks for the breakdown.

    • Douglas Stewart

      No problem. And you’re right. But what is unforgivable is that Alex Jones takes advantage of that and intentionally misleads his audience and anyone else he can get to listen or picks up on it and passes the info around. Churchill was right when he said [sic] “a lie can get halfway around the world before the truth even gets out of bed.”

  • Jesse

    Call it a conspiracy, but I think that a good number of the off the wall conspiracy theorists are on the government’s payroll. The best counterintelligence is to poison the well. If there are planted theorists that put out really weak theories, they weaken the position of the skeptics and legitimate theorists, following the weakest link rule. After all, the best strawmen are gaffes, or intentional misinformation. An example: a “conspiracy theorist” comes up with a new theory and goes public: he believes that the world is going to be taken over by ice cream monsters. After that goes public, every idiot will assume that any conspiracy theory, rational as it may be, is as half-cocked as a theory about ice cream monsters. So, as I said, I think that there are theories being disseminated to mislead people into thinking that all theories are laughably flawed. And there are probably less irrational theories being spread by false flags to dilute the ones that are not actually theories at all.

  • Daniel Rold

    See what you don’t get is that the government is actively supporting economic interest at the expense of the public in nearly every industry. Its not one little thing like this its a whole ton of info. Of course wording can be skewed. If you don’t think that government is capable of atrocity your not very educated in history. Conspiracy is the norm genius. You think all those fat, diabetic, diseased people out there are protected by our FDA? Come on man. Conflicts of interest are all over our government. You have debunked nothing.

    It’s written by FEMA … The F stands for Federal.

    Having or relating to a system of government in which several states form a unity but remain independent in internal affairs.
    Of, relating to, or denoting the central government as distinguished from the separate units constituting a federation.

    Go to … do you see their map?

  • David Russell

    READ the document.
    2-40. The I/R tasks performed in support of civil support operations are similar to those during combat
    operations, but the techniques and procedures are modified based on the special OE associated with
    operating WITHIN U.S. territory and according to the categories of individuals (primarily DCs) to be housed
    in I/R facilities. During long-term I/R operations, state and federal agencies will operate within and around
    I/R facilities within the scope of their capabilities and identified role. Military police commanders must
    closely coordinate and synchronize their efforts with them especially in cases where civil authority and
    capabilities have broken down or been destroyed.

  • Becky

    Who the hell cares where this is happening? People are people; whether in a foreign country or the United States. It’s absolutely barbaric that our nation signed this into law – regardless of where it is implemented. And what goes around comes around. Whomever has access to this knowledge and accepts it as okay with the mindset of, “at least it won’t happen to me!” – is accepting torture and murder in a heartless and selfish manner. And frankly, it makes me sick to my stomach to see people debating where it is “allowed” to occur as if it’s all okay to happening to “war enemy” civilians. This sort of thing is psychopathic and sickening on all levels no matter what way you look at it. Sorry, Douglas Stewart, but your argument is lost on me.

  • rich

    GAWD you people are SHEEP First off I love that you included a LINK to ARMYPUB.PUB…. guess what??? the DOD has taken the Field manual FM 3-39.40 OFF that site.. I WONDER WHY? NEXT can you enlighten us on the following sections of FM 3-39.40?

    FM 3-39.40 “ARMYPUB”

    SECTION 1-42
    U.S. agencies.
    • Local U.S. embassy.
    • Department of Homeland Security.,
    • U.S. Immigration and
    • Customs Enforcement (ICE).
    • Federal Emergency Management Agency.
    All of these are departments for U.S DOMESTIC. concerns! NONE are or have any jurisdiction outside the United States!

    SECTION 2-40
    The I/R tasks performed in support of civil support operations are similar to those during combat operations, but the techniques and procedures are modified based on the special OE associated with operating within U.S. TERRITORY!

    SECTION 7-16
    Individual identification photographs are taken of all prisoners. The prisoner’s last name, first name,
    and middle initial are placed on the first line of a name board, and the prisoner’s SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER is placed on the second line.

    SECTION 10-40
    10-40. Resettlement operations typically include controlling civilian movement and providing relief to
    human suffering. These operations may be performed as domestic civil support operations (due to natural
    or man-made disasters), stability operations (due to noncombatant evacuation operations, humanitarian assistance
    operations), or DC operations (due to combat operations). The authority to approve resettlement
    such operations within U.S. territories is at the Secretary of Defense level and may require a special
    exception to Title 18, USC (Posse Comitatus Act). The Posse Comitatus Act prohibits the U.S. military
    from enforcing civilian laws within the United States or its territories without specific authorization. The
    U.S. Constitution and other federal, state, and local laws may directly and significantly affect operations in
    the U.S. and its territories if the enforcement of civilian laws are required according to Title 10, USC. U.S.
    military forces conducting law enforcement functions in such cases require an authorization through a
    congressional act (for example, Title 10 USC, Sections 331 through 334 [Insurrection Statues]) or a
    constitutional authorization (for example the President invoking his executive authority under Article 2 of
    the Constitution). U.S. Army National Guard Soldiers operating in a nonfederal status are not restricted by
    the Posse Comitatus Act. (See Title 32, USC, and JP 3-28.)

    Find in this section that certain U.S. Domestic laws may need to be over written by Executive orders by the President to proceed! AGAIN I am unaware of ANY Foreign concerns that have any legal entanglements with such U.S. TERRITORIAL laws such as Posse Comitatus Act. This section clearly states the purpose of the Field manual and these operation are specialty mandated to be use IN THIS COUNTRY AGAINST the U.S. PEOPLES, and that US LAW WIll have to be violated or overwritten to proceed!
